Singing about all the good things in life

Express Staff Writer

That unrestrained Texas trio, Reverend Horton Heat is barnstorming through Ketchum this week. With the Reverend—a.k.a. James C. Heath—on lead vocals and guitar, Jimbo Wallace on doghouse bass and Scott Churilla on ham fisted drums, the Reverend Horton Heat is continuing its tour of the country in support of the band’s latest CD "Lucky 7."

Appearing at the nexStage Theatre on Thursday, the Reverend and his band play in a show produced by Bravo Entertainment in Boise.

On this current tour, Reverend Horton Heat also continues the practice, established several years ago, of playing multiple dates at smaller venues in as many markets as possible, bringing a special up-close and personal feel to their barn-burning live shows.

The band’s signature sound spreads an inspirational message of the good life involving fast cars, fast women, free-flowing booze through paint-peeling rock ‘n’ roll.

Known for a combination of surf guitar, punk rock brashness and psychobilly, the band remains intent on banishing the outmoded practice of categorizing rock ‘n’ roll into a gazillion different genres. And in typical fashion, the good Reverend does so with stellar fretwork, songs about whiskey 'n' women, a few nods to faithful bass-slinging sidekick Jimbo Wallace, and a serious amount of tongue-in-cheek humor.

Unknown Hinson opens the show. Billy Bob Thornton, writing in "Alternative Music Magazine" said, "The dentally-challenged Southern crooner with the Roy Orbison-like jet-black pompadour and mutton chops sings kitschy hickabilly that's as fun as a shotgun wedding or a monster truck rally."

Tickets for the 8 p.m. show are available through ticketron.com or at Atkinsons' Market in Ketchum.
